The U.S. Senate Homeland Security Committee postponed a vote on Wednesday on whether to approve President Donald Trump's nominee Ronald Vitiello to lead the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency.

The committee's Chairman Ron Johnson did not elaborate on his reasons for delaying the vote, but the postponement came one day after ICE's employee union urged lawmakers to block Vitiello's nomination amid concerns about past racially tinged and controversial comments he made on Twitter.
